I've just noticed my eyelids are starting to feel dry. I'm talking about the part that covers the eye and the part under the eyebrow. Is there a specific cream/topical for this area?

I currently use Clinique products, including their eyeshadow and eye makeup remover. But they don't seem to have anything for my particular concern....

Clinique does make an eyecream that you can use on the entire eye area. Just ask a Clinique consultant.

Every line as far as I know sells eye cream - just use a little moisturizer, applied w/your ring finger and dabbed on, when you go to bed.

Olay makes an eye cream. Their products are really good at removing lines/wrinkles.

All natural almond oil. I've been using it for the past year with great results. It only takes a tiny amount to not only moisturize the eye lid, but the entire eye area. It also nourishes your eyelashes, which helps them grow. Great for nighttime use in particular. Can't go wrong with almond oil!

You can also try Vaseline...it works great. I put it on over a minimal amount of eye cream and the dryness goes away. Do it before you go to sleep.

Many cosmetic company eye creams actually can cause eyelid problems if you are allergic to any of their ingredients. I can't use Clinique eye cream because it makes my eyelid red, rough and dry. You may be causing your eyelid problem by the present products you are using. Also, eye shadows can also cause allergic reactions. Nickel is a problem chemical for many people.

Sometimes I use Genteal dry eye lubricant on my lids at bedtime. It's made to put In The Eye, but I use it ON my eyelids. It has fewer chemical ingredients than many other eye products.

Clinique makes many kinds of eye creams (with differing ingredients) - which one gives you problems? I am also highly allergic but the particular eye cream that I use from Clinique doesn't irritate me.

Not all eye creams are recommended to go over the entire eye area.

I don't remember which Clinique eye cream I used, as that was a number of years ago. I think at the time it was the only one they marketed. They also have changed their lipstick, adding an SPF to it. After that change I could no longer use their lipstick, as my lips got itchy and dry from the new formula.

Which Clinique eye cream do you use without a problem?
